SO and I feed SD meat while her mom has her on a vegan diet. That diet isn't because of healthy reasons its because her mom thinks its horrible to eat meat. Well SD loves meat, a lot! Her grandma also feeds her meat as well.

Is it wrong that we give her meat?

ETA* its NOT to spite her mother, she has NO allergies he mom is against eating animals or dairy, and we see her every weekend. She is 2 1/2

Your s/o is just as much the girl's parent as her mom is, so no I don't think it's wrong. She can't make the rules at your house.

No. Hes her dad. She can eat meat at your house and be vegan at her house.

Nope. I always thought a kid should be able to choose wether they want to be vegan, or whatever.

That's what I think and no one has agreed because we only see her on the weekends (every weekend not every other weekend) her dad told her mom she shouldn't force that diet on her and she threatened his rights to see her and he believed her for a min.

If you are not the custodial parent, and you are purposefully going against the mother's wishes, you are undermining her position as legal parent, and that is beyond unacceptable. She has her reasons and as long as she is not abusing or neglecting the kid, you have no right to go against her.

Is your husband the custodial parent? or does the girl visit her dad? 

why would you purposely go against what her mother wants? why not talk to her? why not discuss it like adults? 

I may be biased, as i am the only custodial parent to my daughter, and if her fathers wife ever tried to change something as important as diet without talking to me, i would be livid.

Since when is being a vegitarian a fanatical issue? 

would you say the same about homosexuality? 

choosing to breastfeed or not? 


Its a lifestyle choice. not a fanatical issue.
